Indiana State Police began the investigation after receiving a complaint from a Morgan County bank. During the course of the investigation, detectives discovered 42 checks with a monetary value of approximately $ 40,000 that witnesses said were given to them by Harris. Witnesses stated they received checks from Harris and would cash them for him. In return, Harris would allegedly give them a portion of the cash from the forged checks.
